Cinq Music Partners With Rock Group TRAPT, Drops New Single

Indie distributor, label and publisher Cinq Music has partnered with Multi-Platinum American rock band TRAPT to release a new single with visionary rapper An0maly. The signing and new song were announced by Cinq Senior VP of A&R Marcus Spence. Titled, COME TOGETHER, the single, along with accompanying video will be available Friday, November 16 on all major digital music outlets. TRAPT's previous label was Warner Bros.

"TRAPT is an uncompromising rock band embraced by millions of fans in these tense and anxious times," says Spence. "Their song catalog is strong and passionate, yet always full of reflection. The band's inspiring lyrics and powerful message promote positive change through music. I'm so excited to make them my first project at Cinq." TRAPT is probably best known for their 2002 hit ‘Headstrong,' which topped the Billboard rock chart and peaked in the Top 20 of the Billboard 200.

According to TRAPT founder and frontman Chris Taylor Brown, the new song COME TOGETHER is a unifying anthem for the US, and possibly the world. "Come Together is all about love and positivity," says Brown. I am tired of the hate, division, and negativity in America. I wanted to make a song that would hopefully unite and help the great American society at large. Adds An0maly, "This song is aimed at reminding people that regardless of their skin color, religion, or political beliefs, life would be better for all of us if we stop being so divisive, nasty and stubborn."

Worship Artist XAVIER JOLLIFF Inks Management Deal With The Management Agency (TMA)

Worship Artist XAVIER JOLLIFF has inked a management agreement with The Management Agency (TMA).

Xavier Jolliff is an American Contemporary Christian singer, songwriter and musician.

As a teenager Xavier began writing lyrics and singing to family and friends. He became a member of the AARC Mass Choir in 2005 and recorded Gospel Music chart topper "I've Got a Testimony" which stayed at the top of the charts for weeks and won multiple awards.

His love for music transcends genres. At an early age he was able to play with Hip-Hop and R&B sensations Destiny's Child, R. Kelly, Chico DeBarge, Do or Die, Flavor Flav, Bobby Brown and Al B. Sure. After becoming a Ravinia Jazz Scholar he has played alongside jazz greats Ramsey Lewis, Willie Pickens, Charlie O'Neil, Ernie Adams and Rubin Alvarez.

After leaving the University of Minnesota where he successfully worked with the university's Gospel choir to much acclaim, Xavier returned to his hometown of Chicago and took a job teaching Gospel Choir at his alma mater, Gordon S. Hubbard High School. From there, he went on to teach at Hyde Park High School, earning his first major award for Best High School Choir.

In March 2018 Xavier performed a live audio and video recording of his debut album entitled Heart of Worship. He is currently putting the final touches on the album which is expected to be released in 2019.

Critically-Acclaimed Instrumental Rock Guitarist Mike Dekleva Releases His Second Four Song Instrumental Rock Music EP "Psychedelia"

Instrumental rock guitarist Mike Dekleva releases his second four song instrumental rock music EP, "Psychedelia," on Friday, November 9, 2018.

"Psychedelia" follows in the footsteps of Dekleva's critically acclaimed and award-winning 2015 debut instrumental rock EP, "Synergy." Like "Synergy," Dekleva's new EP "Psychedelia" is a collection of four new original instrumental rock songs and was recorded at Paragon Recording Studios in Franklin, Tennessee, and in Dekleva's home recording studio in Albuquerque, New Mexico. "Psychedelia" was co-produced by Dekleva and Nashville session guitarist Robbie Calvo, and features performances by Dekleva (lead, rhythm and acoustic guitars), Robbie Calvo (rhythm guitars), Jason Webb (piano and keyboards), Amanda McCoy (bass guitar) and Grady Saxman (drums and percussion). "Psychedelia" was mixed by Casey Barker at Paragon Recording Studios, and mastered by John Mayfield at Mayfield Mastering, in Nashville Tennessee.

Dekleva's guitar playing has drawn favorable comparisons to the playing of renowned guitarists Steve Lukather, Neal Schon, Dan Huff, and Eric Clapton. His music features strong vocal-like guitar melodies and pop-style musical arrangements, but also incorporates elements of classic hard rock music from the '70's and '80's. Dekleva's music has been described as having an abundance of "melody, timbre, tone and all-round class," that should appeal to not only fans of instrumental rock guitar, but to "music lovers in general." (JamSphere Independent Music Magazine, January 13, 2016).

"Psychedelia," will be available for purchase beginning on Friday, November 9, 2018, from Dekleva's "CD Baby" store, as both a special, limited edition CD and as a digital download. The EP will also be available from iTunes in a "Mastered for iTunes" format, with a pre-sale starting on Friday, November 2, 2018.
